I apologize in advance for being unsophisticated. I have installed and been happily using a discourse forum for my cycling group, where we post upcoming rides using the calendar plugin. It has worked really well for us, and has served its desired purpose of getting us all off FB. The individual rides are posted as topics with all the RSVPs etc. It works great!
I’d really like a pinned topic at the top of our ride category that when clicked automatically opens the upcoming events calendar from the hamburger menu. I have only been able to create a topic that has the URL link in the text of the topic which requires an extra click. I am old, and to the extent I played with coding in the past I used php etc., a long long time ago
